Flag boosting is by far the fastest way to earn points. It will only really work if everyone in the session is up for it so be prepared to quit and start up a new session if you cannot get universal agreement. You need a minimum of eight people (who should all be party chat together) to search for ranked capture the flag games at the same time.

Once you have all found each other you will have to hope that you don't get any legitimate players join the lobby whilst the countdown is active. It might be worth one person in the party dropping into game chat to try and talk some of the non-party members into playing along.

When the game starts you need all players to gather closely near their own flag (but not on the flag spot). Then one player from each team needs to go to the other teams flag to be the thrower. The thrower should stand almost exactly on the flag spot (perhaps with it a little behind them) such that they can pick up the flag and then immediately throw it forwards into the opposition group and it will reset. Try to find a position that requires you to do the minimum amount of movement when doing this to save time. Each time the thrower picks up the flag he will get 1 point and each time the group resets it they will get between 1-5 points each depending on connection quality.

Keep doing this until the end of the match for between 500-1500 points. The thrower will generally earn less since they only ever get 1 point per cycle. Alternative the thrower each game to keep things fair.

Note that when doing this you are quite vulnerable to legitimate players coming in and wiping everyone out. Remember that they are perfectly entitled to do this, it is really down to you to ensure you either don't start if you can't get agreement or leave early if things start going wrong.

Here's a video that showing some flag boosting in action:
